Heard of Guy’s passing yesterday while in White Cloud from my Uncle Kenny Richey. I am Rex’s daughter, Diana. I have many fond memories of your Dad (& Mom, Irma). Mom & Dad loved their visits & your Dad was their longtime insurance agent!! Please know how saddened I am for your loss. Guy was a sweet, wonderful man & he will be missed.
